Island Groove

Lyrics: [none]
Music: Adepoju, Hart, Hussain, Moreira, Olatunji

An instrumental on Mickey Hart's "Planet Drum" CD. He gives the following background:

Island Groove is the soft side of percussion. It is a slow but simple 4/4 samba of ashiko rhythm, based on the sounds of the Yoruban consonants: go, pa, gun. When put together, they become the drum talk. This song evolved as the rhythms one person played reminded another of something in their own background. We were able to collectively draw upon our various traditions, and contribute individually to the creation of this composition.
